Ingredients
  • 1 cup meat-flavored spaghetti sauce
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1 cup low-sodium beef broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 ounce semisweet chocolate
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 rib-eye steaks, about 1-inch thick
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
Directions
  • In a saucepan, combine spaghetti sauce, wine, broth, pumpkin pie spice, chocolate and red pepper flakes. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes.

  • Season the steak generously on both sides with salt and pepper, patting the seasoning into the meat.

  • Heat a heavy skillet, preferably cast iron, over medium heat until hot. Add vegetable oil. When melted, add the steaks and cook until seared and well-crusted on 1 side, about 4 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon of butter to first side of steaks. Turn, add 1 tablespoon of butter to the other side of the steaks and cook 3 minutes more for medium-rare, and 4 minutes more for medium. Remove from the heat and let steaks rest for 5 minutes before slicing.

  • Slice steaks, place on plates, and spoon sauce over.
